RACINE — The Racine Theatre Guild, 2519 Northwestern Ave., will present its production of “Always ... Patsy Cline,” a tribute to the legendary singer, Friday, July 14, through Sunday, July 23.
Based on the true story of Louise Seger, a Texas housewife who meets and befriends her idol, Patsy Cline, the musical is filled with down-home humor and honky-tonk style. In the musical — which features 27 of Cline’s classic hits including, “Crazy,” “I Fall to Pieces,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Walkin’ After Midnight” — Louise reminisces about her friendship with the country star. Last performed at RTG in 2003, “Always ... Patsy Cline” is an intimate look at Patsy the singer and friend.false
One of the most groundbreaking women in country music history, Cline continues to be an icon more than 54 years after her untimely death. The musical, created and originally directed by Ted Swindley, features Kate Potter-Barrow as Patsy Cline and Anne Mollerskov as Louise Seger.
Directed by Douglas Instenes, they are backed up by a live band comprised of Zach Johnson on piano, Mark Paffrath on fiddle/guitar, Nathan Johnson on drums, Tim Ipsen on bass and Marv Dykhuis on steel guitar.false
